Local Community Giving
In communities across the globe our taxes and investments contribute to economic growth and we also work to determine ways to be good neighbors. This includes working with community members and partners to meaningfully and measurably contribute to each community’s unique needs by identifying and addressing areas of local concern through charitable investments and volunteerism in support of education, health and safety, the environment, the arts, civic and social services and disaster relief. In 2019, efforts ranged from supporting the National Geographic Live speaker series in Canada and the U.S. to the Qatar National Public Safety Campaign.
Through the Heart for Heart project in China, we fund surgeries for children from low-income families who suffer from congenital heart diseases. To build long-term capacity, ConocoPhillips China worked with Children’s HeartLink and hospitals in China to develop the Creating Hope for Hearts project, which funds and supports overseas training for medical professionals from different provinces.

ConocoPhillips sponsors the Nordland Music Festival (Nordland Musikkfestuke), one of Norway’s largest music festivals, which includes jazz, contemporary music, folk music, musical theater, dance and pop/rock concerts. In addition to performances in churches and concert venues around the city, the festival is famous for its spectacular and nontraditional outdoor concerts.
